Reviews Ruin and Rising (Grisha Verse, #3)

  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies
    I AM SO PISSED. I AM SO PISSED.Please allow me the indulgence of using an extended metaphor to describe this series.The first book is the first stages of love. It's not true love, but infatuation. You are ensnared by his looks, enamored by everything he does. His quirks are adorable. His faults are overlooked because it's a part of who he is. It's part of what makes him special. So what if he has a habit of scratching his ass in public? It's cute...

    They had an ordinary life, full of ordinary things--if love can ever be called that.

    la la la la la tis impossible for me to say anything coherent about the Grisha trilogy because I love it so much. What a wonderful conclusion. I'm so happy I finally continued with this series this year.
  • Jesse (JesseTheReader)
    That was an interesting conclusion to the trilogy. I can't say I'm super satisfied with how things came together, but it was still enjoyable! My main gripe with this series is it's lack of plot. I wanted more from the story, all three books feel like this build up to the ending, but nothing happens during those build up moments. (obviously this is just my opinion, you don't have to agree with me!)

    UPDATE:The more years pass- the more embarrassing this fucking review gets lmao. BUT ALSO- I have to admit, while Acomaf beat this ^ trash book in regards to storytelling, Acowar (Acotar #3) kinda sucked ass so like... y'all tread carefully and if anything- enjoy Acomaf only because I see that book as a standalone anyway.Also, fuck this book & the author lmfao.UPDATE:Okay so for those of you (like myself) who were disappointed with this ^ piece o...

    *5 “you might make me a better man” stars* “I will strip away all that you know, all that you love, until you have no shelter but mine.” Agony. Pain. Tears. Heartbreak. Acceptance. This is the way the Grisha trilogy ends.A masterpiece. A gem. Leigh Bardugo gave everything she had in this grand finale. I'm numb and empty inside. I want to sit in silence and contemplate what happened and figure out the reasons why. I came to the conclusio...

    It's been a few years now and I still can't find the words to review this masterpiece of a trilogy. The worldbuilding was so much fun. The characters were hilarious & real. The plot twists were incredible. I loved every single thing about it... SO I now present to you the feels broken down in annoying gifs:How I feel about Nikolai:How I feel about The Darkling:How I feel about Mal:The beginning of this book in the caves:The third amplifier twist:...
  • Brittney ~ Reverie and Ink
    Holy shit. This was brilliant and terrible and I have so many feels I can't even begin to describe.Ok ok, listen. I know there are so many conflicting reviews on this book. But as for me? I literally could not choose how I wanted it to end. I know, I might be a terrible person but I was totally OK with all three ending scenarios. At the beginning of this book.. I was literally rooting for Alina to save the Darkling, Alina with Nikolai, and Alina ...
